Civil 3D is a great tool but worthless when working on big models. The time saved in using Civil 3D than other suits is wasted twice waiting the pc to respond after each major command or analysis. Why hasn't the development team reprogrammed the suit for multi-core processing support yet?
agree, would be nice to break down a corridor in the program down to say 12 thread then my 12 thread cpu can rebuild the corridor in 1/12th the time. definitely a major improvement for this program.
now adays if you can imagine it then you can program it. just not profitable for them to look into this. most projects are small enough that corridor is ok. i always do crazy corridors for some reason like 100-400km long road projects.
